The reality star said this pregnancy will probably be her last pregnancy because she suffers from a very dangerous condition that at best will cost her her uterus and at worst could kill her.

Kardashian said she has placenta accreta, a condition that causes the placenta to grow through and outside of the uterus. According to the Mayo Clinic, it can cause premature birth and often necessitates a hysterectomy because otherwise infection and hemorrhage can kill the mother.

"It was over a year of trying, and I had so many complications," she told C magazine of her and Kanye West's struggle to conceive their second baby. "I had this condition called placenta accreta. There were a couple of little operations to fix all that, so that created a little hole in my uterus, which I think made it really tough to get pregnant again. It was a long road. I would go to the doctor in Beverly Hills every day at five in the morning to get tested to see if I was ovulating.

"Well, they think I’ll have placenta accreta again, so if the placenta grows a little bit deeper than it did last time, then they are prepared to have my uterus removed, which is a little scary for me. I think we’re just gonna go day by day, see how overwhelming it is, and see how the delivery goes."

So scary! Hopefully Kardashian's medical team can keep her pregnancy healthy.
